Bed Extension for Excelsior Mini Lathe MC-1018

Increase the maximum length of spindle you can turn with your Excelsior Mini Lathe MC-1018 (#33207, sold separately) by more than double with this cast-iron Bed Extension. It attaches quickly and easily to the Excelsior Mini Lathe and increases the distance between centers from 17-3/4" to 38-1/2" – providing you the capacity needed to turn table legs, baseball bats or other longer spindles. The extra weight adds to overall lathe stability, as well.

Works Perfectly with Rikon 70-105
This was a perfect fit for my Rikon 70-105 mini lathe. I had to buy a couple 1-1/2" 1/4" bolts with lock nuts to attach it, but the holes lined up exactly. It's very solid and stable.

Good value
I bought this to extend the lathe to turn table leg spindles. It is well built and needed a little extra work to install, but, it was worth it.

Fits my Jet mini lathe just fine
This fits my Jet mini lathe just fine and makes the bed plenty long enough for my needs. A good price and less than a third the price of other bed extensions.

will this fit my Harbor Freight 65345 10 X 18 mini wood lathe?
Robert R on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea whether that would fit your Harbor Freight wood lathe. I bought the Excelsior wood lathe and it works great on it but I wish I had bought the Jet for a bit more money. I can't find a duplicator to fit the Excelsior but they have one for the Jet. Be sure to research accessories on lathes, depending on what you want to do with it.
how long is the Extension?
A shopper on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is 21 3/4" from end to end on the bed. If you measure from feet bolt center on the original lathe to the feet bolt center on the extension it is 22". That is due to the milled recess that the extension rests in. That is how it measures on mine!
Will this fit the Harbor Freight/Central Machinery 8 In. X 10 In. 1/2 HP model 65345?
t m on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 65345 is a 10x18 lathe. If that is the one (65345) then the extension will work. I have put one on mine. It may require a little bit of relief but nothing major I would recommend it for anyone wanting to extend the length of the lathe. I was very happy with mine.
Distance between ways? Thickness of ways?
Mark B on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1 1/4" or 32mm between ways and 9/16" or 14mm thick ways on the mini lathe mc-1018 extension--- Steve.
Will this extension fit the Grizzly T25920?
Hardy on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. BUT. I bought this for my Central Machinery lath and it fits perfect. I looked online at several companies and found this lath looks exactly like a lot of them, so I gave it a try figuring I could send it back if it did not fit. It did fit and I am very pleased with the purchase. The one from Grizzly looks just like my Harbor Freight model.
Where can I get a longer Excelsior Mini Lathe Replacement Belt say about tow or three times longer?
Kenneth C on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't understand the question. Why do you want a belt 2 to 3 times longer than the replacement belt? Are you going to change the location of the motor?
Does anyone make a duplicator for this lathe? I also have the bed extension for it.

BEST ANSWER: you should be looking for a duplicator that can handle a 10" swing. The one we sell is only for 12" to 16" swing. I would suggest a google search.
If you have ever read ShopNotes. I believe that last year they had and article on making your own duplicator.
